5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

I Stressed for Months and Now my Breast Augmentation is over and I'm Thrilled! - San Diego, CA

I want to share my breast augmentation story because when I was contemplating getting one I searched the Internet constantly for other people's stories and it helped me tremendously! So here it goes... After two kids, my once full C cup boobs turned into small SMALL B cups. After a year of going back and forth on whether to get a boob job or not, I finally decided to go to a consultation...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Love Dr.Shumway and his staff!

Dr.Shumway is always very kind to me and makes me feel comfortable in his office. He has done my fillers for the last few years and I absolutely love the results. I like to keep my look somewhat natural, and he manages to enhance my lips without making me look like I've obviously had injections. And the process is almost painless because he is so skilled at what he does! And everyone tells me...

Elderly Lady: Best Job on Persistent Frown Between my Eyebrows - La Jolla, CA

I have seen Dr. Shumway off and on for 20 years for different procedures. While the results have varied, the Botox always works perfectly.

Micro-liposuction - La Jolla, CA

Dr. Shumway is a wonderful doctor! He has more experience than most surgeons when it comes to body and face. He does not rush his patients into surgery and carefully presents risks and benefits. Dr. Shumway is a very good listener. Cherise, the Patient Care Coordinator, is very knowledgeable on a variety of procedures and makes you feel very comfortable, as a new patient (especially when in...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Absolutely Amazing Staff and Pain Free Surgery! - San Diego, CA

Extremely personable staff that goes above and beyond their job. They always made me feel so at ease and did everything they could to make sure I was ready to go through this drastic surgery. I chose Dr. Shumway's office for a Rhinoplasty consultation about two years ago. When I recently went back they quoted me the same price as my consultation & that same day I booked my surgery.

Amazing Work, I Wouldn't Trust Anyone else to Touch my Face! - La Jolla, CA

I have always been concious of my profile because of my nose. I felt this way since I was 12. I finally decided to do the surgery in my late 20's and I am so glad I went through it! Dr Shumway did an amazing job! My nose turned out just as he described, I was actually shocked by how good it really looked when it was done - way better than I could of imagined! Dr Shumway and his staff are wonderful, I always feel comfortable at their office & I know I am in good hands. I wouldn't trust anyone else to touch my face =)
